“Don't go there”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2011

most awful windlowless room in basement (it looked like a storage room) next to the lift shaft. The bathroom was tiny, painted black, smelled, toilet had no seat. The 'cot' was single bed unsuitable for a baby. We asked to move - got double room, which was better, but overall, wouldn't never recommend this place.
I was trying to do my review on hostelsword and it shows that my booking was cancel so I couldn't do my review there.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2010

The Barcelona Residence is actually a bunch of rooms in various apartments along a block in Barcelona, so it's operated slightly different than the average hostel. The location was EXTREMELY convenient, and although there isn't AC, we were there in August and it wasn't an issue. I would recommend this place to anyone, just make sure to note that it costs 25 Euros to do your wash - that was the only negative about this place. Other than that, very good spot to stay.
